“WEBTOON is changing its rules for financial compensation to comic creators on the site, and it’s likely a reaction to declining ad rates. Despite being given months of notice, creators are furious. Especially after we’ve seen how much a site like Twitter can change almost overnight, people REALLY need to think about building their own sites again. Especially when your livelihood is on the line.”

This is probably correct. The internet will likely become a lot less animated, and a lot less consolidated. Many people will lose their options and exposure, simply because they cannot afford to personally support it.

“It’s well known by this point that Ye (formerly Kanye) West has unaddressed mental health problems, but are those problems an excuse for the vile things he’s been saying recently? Were the things he said premeditated? I dig into the whole situation. After that I get the election news from Brazil and react live!”

“This early 90s propaganda series gets very dark. It’s all fictional. They made it up to scare people and whip them into a panic about the Satanists and Wiccans all around them. It’s the most classic example I’ve ever seen of the satanic panic from that era. Despite the serious topics they try to throw in it is hilarious how bad a job they did making it seem real. Every supporting “news article” they showed was fake.”

I remember this series…I was attracted to the “information” about paganism and witchcraft.

Norm Finkelstein Takes Down Bernie and the Squad…

Date: November 12, 2022

“Norman “X” Finkelstein returns to Useful Idiots, fired up and with a scathing critique of Bernie Sanders and The Squad.

He begins with a definition of radicalism and The Left, citing the writing of Rosa Luxemburg: “The whole job of The Left is to constantly point out the conflict of interest between the ruling elite, the capitalist class, and yourself. To constantly point out: ‘Their interests are not your interests. Don’t be fooled.’”

Historically, he says, Bernie Sanders has upheld this left tradition, calling out the crooks who steal your money.

But when it came to Ukraine, “the bunch of crooks metamorphosed into a band of angels. You’re telling me the same people who are cheating you day in and day out, stealing your wealth, stealing your labor, those same people are suddenly heartbroken by what’s happening to the Ukrainian people?”

Norm does not pull any punches in his assessment of The Squad and Sanders:

“The day the squad and Bernie voted for war credits for Ukraine, that whole progressive enterprise turned into a rotting corpse.”

Plus, subscribe to hear the full interview where Norm dissects the midterm election results, the Israel election, and the weaponization of identity politics.

It’s all this, and more, on this week’s episode of Useful Idiots. Check it out.

“Today we’ll talk about experimental evidence for quantum effects in the brain, the discovery of a potentially dangerous asteroid, a new method to track turbulence in plasma, China’s scientific Rise and the British Space Program, viruses on microplastics, how lasers can trick an autonomous vehicle into running someone over, the link between intelligence and self-control – in jay, and a 15th century house excavated in Berlin. And of course the telephone will ring.”
